  • Merrily We Roll Along

    Avenue of the Arts / Huntington Avenue Theatre

    Director Maria Friedman’s stunning London production of Merrily We Roll Along received universal rave reviews – the most five star reviews in West End history – and the Olivier Award for Best Musical. Now she recreates it for Boston audiences! Travelling backwards in time over 30 years in the entertainment business, this legendary, cult favorite musical charts the relationships of close friends Franklin, Charley, and Mary, and features some of Sondheim’s most beautiful songs, including “Good Thing Going,” “Old Friends,” and “Not a Day Goes By.”

    South End / Calderwood Pavilion at the BCA

    On his way home after a year in East Africa, a young aid worker goes back to a shabby Amsterdam hotel room with a fellow American.

  • Tartuffe

    November 10 - December 10, 2017
    Avenue of the Arts / Huntington Avenue Theatre

    Devious Tartuffe charms his way into Orgon’s household and schemes to marry his daughter, seduce his wife, and run off with the family’s fortune. Orgon remains entranced despite the appalling evidence of Tartuffe’s behavior – will he see through this con man before it’s too late? Molière spins religious piety and hypocrisy into high comedy in this hilarious and biting satire, one of the world’s great plays.

  • Mala

    January 6 - January 28, 2018
    South End / Calderwood Pavilion at the BCA

    Funny, brutally honest, and ultimately cathartic, Mala puts a sharp focus on what it means to put our loved ones first, right to the very end, and what happens when we strive to be good but don’t always succeed.

    Named one of the best plays of the year by The Boston Globe, WBUR’s ARTery, and DigBoston when it premiered at ArtsEmerson, this powerful one-woman show written by and featuring Huntington Playwright-in-Residence Melinda Lopez (Sonia Flew, Becoming Cuba) dances between doctors and urgent 911 calls, a mother’s growing frailty, and a daughter’s quest for grace — all set during an epic Boston winter.

    Originally produced by ArtsEmerson

  • Skeleton Crew

    March 2 - March 31, 2018
    South End / Calderwood Pavilion at the BCA

    In the breakroom of the last small auto plant still standing, a makeshift family of workers swap stories, share dreams, and take pride in their work. When confronted with the possibility of the factory closing, power dynamics shift and each is pushed to the limits of survival. Inspired by August Wilson’s Century Cycle, Dominique Morisseau’s bold and compassionate new play is part of her Detroit Project play cycle.

  • Top Girls

    April 20 - May 20, 2018
    Avenue of the Arts / Huntington Avenue Theatre

    Career-driven Marlene has just landed the top job at a London employment agency over a male colleague. To celebrate, she hosts a lavish dinner with a group of famous and adventurous historical women who cheer the successes and bemoan the sacrifices required to be a “top girl” in a man’s world. Churchill’s groundbreaking masterpiece, originally a rebuke of Margaret Thatcher’s England in the 1980s, remains as relevant and powerful today.

    Arthur Miller, the most celebrated American playwright of the 20th century, was said to be the moral conscience of the nation, but he had a secret: a son born with Down syndrome whom he refused to acknowledge. Renowned Hollywood reporter Bernard Weinraub explores the fascinating untold story of Miller and his third wife, photographer Inge Morath, and the divide between their public personas and private lives.
